The Pavilion Gaming Desktop can come with up to an octa-core processor. Users can choose either an Intel Core i7-9700 or an AMD Ryzen 7 processor. It can come with either an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 or an RTX 2060 SUPER. The PC casing is 15L and can hold up to three storage drives.

The laptop comes with up to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti with Max-Q design. It has a 144Hz 1080p screen. It will be available in September and will start at $800.
